AccuBar has released its app for iPhone/iPad, so you now have even greater flexibility in how you can use our bar management program. The app, which follows the release of the Android app in November, enables users to scan inventory items using their phones or tablets, or with a connected Bluetooth scanner.
The app uses the device’s camera to scan an item’s barcode to take inventory, receive product, scan empties, or record transfers between outlets. Connecting the device with a Bluetooth scanner provides a speedier scanning option than most phone cameras can offer.
The app is available now on iTunes here.
The app gives AccuBar users more flexibility in choosing an AccuBar configuration that suits them. The main options will be:
- Fast: Android or iPhone using the device’s camera. This is an attractive option for those with smaller inventories who are looking for the most affordable option.
- Faster: Using a phone or tablet connected to the Bluetooth scanner. This is a lower-cost option that is faster than the phone camera. (Please check with us before buying a Bluetooth scanner; we have tested a few good options, and have found others that don’t meet our specifications.)
- Fastest: The Intermec scanner, which has been the default scanning option for any AccuBar system. This is the blazing fast, rugged industrial scanner that has gotten thousands of customers through their inventories for years.
- Some combination of the above. We think many AccuBar users will choose to buy an Intermec scanner and add a few apps on managers’ phones to supplement that.
If you’re interested in hearing more about these options, we can help you sort through it all and make the best choice for your operation and your budget. (800) 806-3922 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
